c1800-1850 Superb Toledo Damascene High Karat Gold Inlay Club Trefoil Pin Brooch
Presented is a lovely Toledo damascene high karat gold inlay pin or brooch.
This piece dates to the second half of the 1800s. The brooch is done in an oval
form, with little fleur de lis designs at the four cardinal points around the

with ornate foliate scroll work on either side. The high karat gold is very
bright and appealing against the rich dark oxidized background. The pin has an
old C style clasp.

here and there, but the main decorations (the club and its border) are clear and
bright. There are no breaks and no repairs.

The pin weighs 6.2 grams.
